Biscuit Micronutrients Bakery Unit at Jaipur –Adding ‘Taste Value’ to the Mid Day Meal.
Children always look for variation in taste. Alike a mother, who is always in the attempt to provide taste and variety in each meal by keeping the nutrition level intact, Akshaya Patra too shares the same intent. Akshaya Patra keeps adding variation in its mid day meals to fill the appetite, and treat the taste buds of the tiny tots. Whether adults or children, everyone gets bored of eating the same food. Thus, along with nutrition and hygiene, variation in the menu is also an important prerequisite. Apart from being nutritional and hygienic, food should be relished by the children.
Akshaya Patra’s Mid Day Meal menu differs depending on the food habits and taste of a particular region. Akshaya Patra leaves no stone unturned in making its mid-day meal a welcome treat for the children. It’s a meal which not only feeds the hunger of the children and allows them to concentrate on studies, but also provides something that they relish.
Keeping the same objective in mind, Akshaya Patra’s Jaipur kitchen launched its first ever bakery machine. On this occasion, the chief guest, Mr. Pratap Singh Khachriyavas- the MLA of Rajasthan donated Rs. 10 lakhs for Akshaya Patra. He said that the money was donated from his MLA Fund which can be utilized for any of the kitchen's activities. He also congratulated Akshaya Patra for its endeavour for school children. Speaking on the occasion, Shri Ratnangadha Govind Dasa, Unit President – Jaipur, said that local students can now savour nutritious biscuits as part of their mid day meal.
This machine has the capacity of producing 30,000 biscuits a day. These biscuits are produced in a hygienic way taking care of the nutritional value. These biscuits will surely tickle the taste buds of the children and add value to the mid day meal programme of Akshaya Patra.
Initiatives like Roti Machine and Bakery units also reflect Akshaya Patra’s readiness to adopt technology, innovation and new development to continue serving food for the children in the best possible way.
